Kongsberg Maritime will supply a Power & Propulsion System for a new LNG-powered multi-purpose cargo vessel of design MM85CC LNG by Multi Maritime.
The clean and efficient Kongsberg Maritime propulsion system features a Bergen B36:45L6PG gas engine and LNG control and safety system, a Promas controllable pitch propeller and rudder system, together with a battery pack to enable periods of emission free operation in ports and environmentally sensitive areas.
The 3,500dwt vessel is currently under construction at Tersan Shipyard, Turkey, for Norwegian ship owner Egil Ulvan Rederi AS. The new vessel will trade a roundtrip route serving the Norwegian coast from Østfold to Tromsø and will among others have reefer capacity and capability to discharge feed to fish farms.
We have chosen Kongsberg Maritime to supply the power and propulsion system including battery systems and automation as well as deck equipment. This is to ensure integration and 100% utilization of all systems, on what will be the future general cargo/reefer vessel, with focus on environmental performance. We have great confidence in Kongsberg Maritime to support the company’s goal of being the leading supplier in the maritime transport along the Norwegian coast.—Arild Hoff, CEO, Egil Ulvan Rederi
The Kongsberg Maritime scope of supply also includes twin tunnel thrusters, steering gear, and deck machinery. The electrical system includes Hybrid Shaft Generator, SAVe Cube DC switchboard and the SAVe Energy system for energy storage. The system is designed to regenerate energy during crane operations.
The vessel is due to be delivered to the Trondheim-based owner in late 2020.
